EWS Admission: Delhi government to inspect private schools
Delhi government has revealed that they will be conducting random inspections in all the private schools in order to identify the status of EWS (Economically Weaker Section) admissions. In a separate circular, the government has identified 306 schools as defaulters for not updating the admission status under the first computerized draw.
The Directorate of Education (DoE) has formed 24 teams to visit the schools and verify the record of admissions under Economically Weaker Section (EWS) and Disadvantaged Group (DG) categories in entry level classes for the academic session 2016-17. The teams, comprising three members each, will submit their reports within two days of inspecting a school.
The schools have been asked to upload the details on the department’s website by April 8, failing which they could face action under the provisions of Delhi School Education Act and Rules.
“DoE is empowered to conduct special inspection of private unaided schools on any special aspects of the working of an institution and all records of the school are open to scrutiny by any officer authorized by the Director or appropriate authority at any time,” the department said in communication to school heads.
